My favorite poem from that book is when Pooh recites Cottleston Pie.
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie, A fly can't bird, but a bird can fly. Ask me a riddle and I reply Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie. Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie, Why does a chicken? I don't know why. Ask me a riddle and I reply Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie. Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie, A fish can't whistle and neither can I. Ask me a riddle and I reply Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie. -- A. A. Milne
if you dig deep into that poem especially the first line of the poem, A fly can’t bird, but a bird can fly. What does it mean to you and how does it reply to all people including people on the Autism Spectrum. When I was reading my book that I had gotten when I was a child a found a connection on what the Autism Vaccine Activists should read about what makes people people.
Well, Benjamin Hoff implies that things are the way they are and many people ignore that very fact. The Autism Vaccine Activists are especially guilty of this fact. They generally feel that they can change a person by the way of putting efforts into curing the very aspect that makes their child a person. Instead of just letting them be the person who they are, let them grow in the way they grow. Growing up requires encouragement from parents to their children especially for children on the Autism Spectrum. If a parent ceases to change something that is unchangeable by curing that person, you cease that person from existence making a new person. To me, that is not the way to attempt to help a child on the Autism Spectrum. Benjamin Hoff says in his book, “The wise know their limitations; the foolish do not.”
There are many parents of children on the Autism Spectrum that want to change everything about their child. My mother only did everything to make me and continues to try and make me the best man I can be. She knows her limitations and she also knows that all people never stop changing and improving on their own. Making mistakes is a part of life, its a learning curve. The more mistakes you make the better the man or woman someone becomes.
People on the Autism Spectrum like myself make many mistakes and sometimes we get frustrated by acting out, and that is just the frustration of a day that brought much struggle. When toughening up on those that do not try and hurt us, many people become alarmed. Yet, if adults and children alike had ways to act out skits to toughen up on the people that hurt us rather than the people that don’t, then may be many people will not be so alarmed. People on the Autism Spectrum do not know how to react to Neurotypical society when a single ignorant Neurotypical pushes us Aspies and Auties around.
We should all know our limitations and be eager to encourage anybody to better themselves rather than encourage ways to rid the very aspect about creating the child to become a man or a woman.
Think Aspie, Think Autie, Think Pride, Don’t Think Cure!
Ignorance goes a long ways sometimes and this has to stop!!!!
PS Watch this video from Hercules Movie and listen to the song by Michael Bolton and you shall see what I mean about my fellow Autism Spectrumites and I. We are the hero’s of this world not any one of the ignorant ones that want to cure…
